This is aimed at the Deviants who live in or around the Pensacola, FL/Panhandle area.
I would like to assemble a sort of PDF zine that would showcase our best work, available for download, or print, or whatever we want to do with it. (I'd of course give it a name and its own website.) I want to do a project like this to challenge my graphic design skills, all you have to do is submit 1-3 examples of your work and a short bit of info about yourself if you want. If you've ever read Funkworks or Beast from way back then you understand the sort of project I am going for.
The other thing. I'm looking for cool, biting, subversive, alternative, emotional, gritty, sardonic, grimy. Not seashell paintings or banally lit portraits of your kids. We want bad ass shit in this little zine. Personal work, not commercial.
I dunno. Right now I am just throwing the idea out there and seeing what bites. I figure I need about a dozen or so people to really make it sing. This is open mainly to the gulf coast, but anyone may submit really.
Additionally, I may want to include an interview or two, so that could come up as well. I just think it would be cool to have a central location to show our art, and in a different format.
If you are interested, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I don't check DeviantArt so much anymore so if you message me here it could take a couple days for me to read it.
Now it just needs a name...
Oh for a look at Funkworks, a major inspiration for this project, here are three issues to peruse: [link]
